NAIA is an industry funded lobbying business. The NAIA advocates for puppy mills, factory farms and research labs who use animals. The NAIA has opposed any legislation that alleviates suffering and curtails abuse of animals used as commodities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

There disgraceful support of puppy mills and the horse slaughter industry.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have the IRS declare it a for profit organization, that fronts for corporations.

NAIA is NOT an animal welfare organization.

It is an industry front group defending animal cruelty for profit. Look at its board of directors: circuses, horse slaughterers, factory farmers, rodeo organizers, puppy mill apologists, lab animal breeders and vivisectionists, fur farmers... it's a Who's Who of corporate animal abusers.

This group exists for one purpose, and one purpose only: to defend the ability of corporate interests to profit from the abuse of animals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

NAIA undermines animal welfare initiatives and demonizes legitimate animal protection charities. They have little influence on the public, but are heavily involved in lobbying, especially in protecting irresponsible breeders.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Call for an immediate IRS investigation into this questionable organization. According to NAIA's 2009 Form 990, more than 61% of their income was used to pay their employees lavish salaries.

This charity exists solely to protect the interests of those who exploit animals. It is outrageous that it's allowed to function as a non-profit.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Subverting animal welfare. Promoting profits over compassion.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Disband it.

NAIA is one of the truly honest advocates for animal welfare and the pet owner. They have no agenda other than to preserve animal welfare and the relationship between pet and the family. They educate, write model laws that are fair and promote the needs of all animals and their present good models of pet ownership around this country. They have excellent resources of information on all types of animals and issues surrounding animal welfare. This is the go to place for accurate information and resources.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have used their resources for finding factual information about laws and issues surrounding animal ownership.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This is first organization I donate funds to as many of the others are not interested in animal welfare but are only interested in ending the lives of animals.

NAIA helps animal owners and lovers to understand the roles of humans and animals. THey have worked hard to promote animal welfare and to educate the public on the differences between animal welfare and animal rights. They help individuals or communities that are developing, writing or reviewing legislation that effects animals and animal owners. They will help to ensure legislation is protective of the animals welfare and does not effect the owners personal property rights.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

NAIA is very responsive and has reviewed several pieces of legislation for me. I also use their website as a resource when dealing with specific animal issues

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them grow and become recognized as a leading Animal Welfare group
